Well, OK, yes, I can hear oom-pah-pah in "Sempre libera" and "La donna e mobile"...and even in "Di quella pira", with a little effort. And "Parigi o cara". Not "Questo e quella", though. It just seems to me so many of Verdi's numbers (or maybe scenes) end with thumpedy thumpedy thumpedy thumpedy thump THUMP thump THUMP thump. Thump. Thummmmmmmp. (Can you hear it?)
